Upon walking up to Westville, it is hard to tell that this is actually a dining establishment and not a coffee shop..It’s right off Bleeker, on a sleepy street in the West Village. A lot of people I know get delivery from there, but I have been wanting to go for a while. I hadn’t […]

pants at a glance

  • scene: Spaniards to the left of me, Germans to right, stuck in the middle with you; Dressed up visitors and UES residents alike sharing bottles of wine make this place feel very adult; tons of servers running around and managers creeping keep it sophistcated but not stuffy; there are several rooms but no Siberia that we noticed
  • sip: The Anniversary Cocktail, which is a belini with raspberry and lychee
  • savor: The menu changes seasonally, but the egg, the truffle pizza, and both cheeseburgers are staples that will never lead you astray
  • sit: Anyone who appreciates the Shmance; with out of town visitors or family; seems like a great place to eat prior to carrying on an illicit affair in a room upstairs, but UES cheaters might need to beware
  • stilettos: Yes! Feel free to invite Van Cleef, Hermes, Fendi, all the girls to the party
  • spend: $$$

It occurred to me as I sat to write this that Jean Georges really doesn’t get too creative with most of his restaurant names; Jean Georges, is well, his restaurant, Perry Street is located on Perry Street, Mercer Kitchen can be thought of as belonging to both the street and the hotel under which it […]

pants at a glance

  • scene: And be scene!! It's Birkins and Babies and facelifts, oh my!
  • sip: There is a full service bar; I usually opt for a sancerre or bloody mary, because I am dainty; men can feel free to have a beer
  • savor: Chicken soup; Emilia Romana pizza; Mark's Madison avenue salad; Penne arriabiatta; chicken paillard
  • sit: With the ladies, with your sugar daddy, with your family; best seats are in the front room, back room is sort of like siberia, but unless you are UES royalty, you can't always avoid it
  • stilettos: Feel free to do it up, this is in Barney's after all. I have nothing to prove, so jeans and hot shoes are the option for me; it is handbags on parade here...

fancy pantsladies who lunch

I love this place, and to me its about the food. A restaurant in Barney’s wouldn’t necessarily have to have amazing food;  it already has a built in customer base, and let’s face(lift) it, a lot of these ladies dont’ really lunch.  However, Barney’s has itself a great little Italian oasis in the middle of […]
